Onderberg Pakmark and Tomahawk, an Agrimark supplier, sponsored a hole at the Dandelion Prayers Golf Day. A compassionate gesture to support Damian Corbett, a young farmer in need. Yet another great example of Kaap Agri’s “mens-mense” philosophy. On 20 May 2017, Damian, an up-and-coming farmer from the Lowveld farming community who was working on an avocado farm in Tzaneen, was involved in a terrible, single vehicle accident. He was flung from the vehicle suffering physical fractures and major head trauma. His family was told that it was unlikely that he would survive. He was kept in an induced coma for five weeks. Damian (then 23 years old) had a strong will and kept on fighting. He now suffers from Severe Diffuse Axonal Injury – a severe form of traumatic brain injury – and requires 24-hour nursing and medical care. Onderberg Pakmark took up his family’s call for support and hosted a Beer and Biltong stand at the fundraising golf day.
Letter of gratitude (edited)
The Corbett Family and Dandelion Prayers wish to extend our sincerest thanks for your contribution towards our successful Golf Day held on 19 May 2018. Your contribution has helped Dandelion Prayers raise much needed funds for Damian Corbett’s medical care. Your sponsorship of a hole and the Beer and Biltong stand you offered toward our amazing Golf Day and the spirit you brought to the day are greatly appreciated. Damian’s traumatic brain injury has placed him in need of 24-hour nursing care. His medical care, medicines, special food and necessary nutritional needs add up very quickly. We hope that one day he will be able to thank you himself. Until then we do it on his behalf, THANK YOU for everything.
Much Love, Samantha Corbett
